Magna Carta Uncovered
First Edition
Anthony Arlidge, Igor Judge    

2015 marks the 800th anniversary of the grant at Runnymede of Magna Carta.The story of how Magna Carta came into being ,and has been interpreted since, and its impact on individual rights and constitutional developments has more twists and turns than any work of historical fiction.
The authors bring their wide legal experience and forensic skills to uncover the original meaning of the liberties enshrined in Magna Carta, and to trace their development in later centuries up to the drafting of the Constitution of the United States of America. By providing that the powers of the King were not unlimited, the Charter was groundbreaking, yet it was also a conservative document, following the form of Anglo-Saxon charters and seeking to return government to the ways of the Norman kings.
This book tells the enthralling, ultimately inspirational, story of Magna Carta in a concise and readable fashion and will captivate laymen and lawyers alike.


Anthony Arlidge has been a Queen's Counsel for over 30 years. In 1990 he was called upon during a case to argue the meaning of clause 40 of Magna Carta.

Igor Judge was a judge for 25 years and retired as Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales in 2013.
